8:50 am
>> one is a brace that functions as an unloader, what that means is it takes the pressure from one side of the knee and shifts it to the other side of the knee. so from the bad side to the good side. >> okay. >> and the second method is by creating electrical signal, there's two paths, it creates an architecture signal that travels through the joint to improve the pain. >> aren't people doing that naturally when you have that pain you kind of shift your weight to the good side? >> you do. that's exactly right. but we generally can't shift enough. so this helps shift it to a better position. >> i see. so you are shifting, but it's really not good for you on your own? >> well, no, you know, everybody will shift and they'll try to accommodate and that's not a bad thing. >> okay. >> shifting, we do this with a little bit more with the brace. >> now, this comes with a controller. we showed a little bit about it

8:52 am
all these things contribute to earlier arthritis. this will help us remain active. >> donna, you are a patient suffering with osteoarthritis. how has this enhanced your life? >> gave me my life back. i'm able to spend time with my grandchildren, i was able to go trick or treating for three hours without any pain. i don't have any pain at all. >> it is the goal to eventually get them off of the bionic knee where they improve? >> well, the goal is always to get people off of braces, the reality they will probably have some type of maintenance in use of the brace. that's okay, if i can prevent them from getting a knee replacement then they are much happier. >> how do you determine whether or not this is for you? >> i think you need to come in and see us. the reality is you won't know until you come, you get the right x-rays, get the right evaluation, and then we determine whether or not you're
8:53 am
a candidate. ifoff got moderate to mild arthritis i think you are a good candidate for this procedure. >> always think of $6 million man running 60 miles an hour, donna, you ready to do that? >> i can go up and down steps which is a miracle. i couldn't shop, i couldn't walk. now i have my life back. >> that's a great story. >> it is wonderful. it's a miracle. >> you are the bionic woman. >> i am, i'm telling you. it's the best thing i've ever discovered, i'm not on any pain medication or anything. >> to contact you the website is on the screen, www.hips knees and shoulders.com. and you can see this on wjz.com to get all this information again. doctor, donna, thank you so much. >> thank you. >> great information. and of course we'll be right back with your 5-day forecast.
